New programs support multimedia, film education
The Tribeca Film Institute will launch two new programs in New York City and Brooklyn public schools to support multimedia and film education.
The Camera-to-Classroom fund will support partnerships between cultural organizations and New York City public school to implement the curriculum outlined in the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts: The Moving Image. The organizations will plan a workshop for students to produce film, television, or animation projects.
The Tribeca Teaches: Film in Motion program, already implemented in a middle school in the Bronx, will expand to two schools in Brooklyn. A collection of the films produced in this after-school program will be screened at the 2010 Tribeca Film Fest.
Tribeca’s other programs including Tribeca Film Fellows and Screenings for Youth will continue in NYC public schools.
